    Staff were polite. Food was good. single bed was comfortable in family room. Room was Clean.

    Lack of hot water, had to run bath to get hot water in basin. managed to get 4 inches of hot water for a bath. Unmaned secluded reception, staff were behind bar, Room keys were left hanging up, easy access for potential burglars. Could feel springs in doulbe bed. Noisy water pipes through night. No Toilet paper left after maid service. No room to hang towels in bathroom, or places to put family wash bags. Tripped over carpet in bar on first night (wasn't drunk) torn carpet, informed staff of accident. next day at breakfast carpet was still sticking up. Second day at breakfast carpet still sticking up.

    It's proximity to Sunderland where i was working. Bar and Restaurant on site. Friendl staff.

    Rooms were a bbit shabby i.e. chipped work surfaces and loose fittings and old bath sealant in the bathroom.

    We stayed as a party of 9 and all enjoyed the experience. The hotel is clean and well looked after but the staff made the stay worth while. The attitude of everyone was first class and we would all recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Very good

    Spacious bedroom and opportunity for either bar meals or Thai style restaurant. Retaurant staff really nice.

    Attention to detail when cleaning rooms seemed to have slipped, E.G. tea residues in bottom of cups.

    Friendly staff, more than adequate accommodation, reasonable price. Proximity to motorway and main roads as well as to Durham City - a fantastic place to visit.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful, room was lovely and clean

    Decor and fittings slightly dated which is not important except that the toilet in our ensuite leaked from the back

    I like the staff who were helpful and friendly. The bed were of good quality (very good size double bed) and linens and furnishing were of good quality. Room was clean.

    Despite what I like about Highfield commented above, the hallways were dirty, carpet needs replacing and fittings in the room were of poor quality and some were unfinished. The hotel is facing the dual carriage way where my room is facing so it was very noisy. The room did not have a telephone. Even though it was good price for the night (with breakfast), the conditions of the hallways did not make me feel comfortable staying in the hotel. Had I knew what I know now, I would rather pay more for something better.
